About me

Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Integrative Psychotherapy. I see both individuals and couples, and offer both short and long-term therapy.  I am also a very experienced Counselling Supervisor.

I am a highly qualified practitioner with over 20 years experience in a number of settings, including the NHS, Workplace Occupational Health Departments, Alcohol Agencies, Employee Assistance Programmes and, for the last 15 years, private independent practice. I have been accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) since 1999. I am also a registered therapist with a leading private healthcare provider, so if you have private healthcare, check your entitlement.

Please note that I am now semi-retired and work part-time, with a limited number of clients. Therefore at any given time, there is a possibility that I may not be able to take on new clients.
